Gatorskin hard shell

Total :


Great for cycling around Sydney were glass and other debris on the road easily slow your day down! Great bargain for a pair under ninety bucks delivered. Perfect for fitness bikes/flat bars.

Tough tyre

Total :


I commute on a fixed gear bike with bolt on axles so changing a flat is slow and painful. I need a highly puncture and slash proof tyre but one that still rides ok. The Gatorskin Hardshell has about the right balance: it is pretty bomb proof, the rolling resistance is not great but not terrible either and it grips pretty well as long as you don't expect it to perform like a pure race tyre. One thing to note is that it is worth regularly checking the tread for embedded glass etc. and removing what you find. Otherwise they will eventually work their way through, causing a puncture.

I've been running these in 25mm for over 3 years now. A week ago I had my first puncture. That is over 40,000km with only one puncture. I've been riding for over 20 years and no other tyre has come close. To make it even better they still roll fine and grip in the wet. Why bother with other tyres?

Winter must have tyres!

Total :


I have ridden over 22,000 km's in the last 24 months and have used around 25 tubes due to punctures. I have used various Vittoria and Schwalbe tyre until now. The last 5,000 km's I have been riding with the GatorHardshells. I have to admit, I have had 3 flats, 2 were pinch flats because I wasn't paying attention at the time and the third was a genuine puncture. I collected a furniture staple whilest riding through a busy intersection. I knew it had stuck in the tyre but was unable to stop for 20 meters which drove the staple though the tyre and into the tube. I forgive it for this. They have a few slashes on them and I have removed plenty of shards of glass after a ride but by my guess they will go another 5,000 km's easy. Tread is thick still but I have all the confidence in them. Where and how far I ride can be checked on Strava at http://app.strava.com/athletes/142799. I plan to use these 700 X 25C's indefinitely, they are a great "confidence" tyre. If I raced, then that would be another story! They might be a little heavy for climbing but you can carry less spares, with confidence, to compensate for that!
